    Berri

    October 28, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Stayed a couple of nights at Martin's Bend campground near Berri SA. What a top spot right on the banks of the Murray!

    Checked out the beautiful Riverland district including Berri, Renmark, Barmera, Lake Bonney and Paringa. We were lucky to catch the Paringa Verticle Lift Bridge in operation to let a houseboat travel through...it only operates twice a day if needed. Also checked out Lock 5...one of 13 locks on the Murray River as well as 2 Barrages at the river mouth (which we saw when at Goolwa in April.)

    Called in and said G'day to Brenton's mate Kym at Barmera who put us on to the Woolshed Brewery outside Paringa. Had a couple of beers on the deck overlooking the Murray River...what a spot!

    Spent the afternoons back at camp, sitting in the Murray watching the sun go down...

    Hot one day - 36°...moderate the next - 29°
